The Q Mum was a classic. I would bet she read the DM and called it the Daily Laugh for the humor it provided.

If that's the case... their work behind the scenes is a lot more comprehensive than they get credit for, and the Royal Foundation will be interesting to watch in the coming years.
I agree, I loved Catherine's message and the work she, the Royal Foundation and charities are doing.

I'm in full agreement with you.

Catherine must think it's crazy how people flock to everything she does. It's good press attention for her and she knows that's a bonus, but it must be a bit overwhelming knowing that everywhere you go there will be a large gathering of people wanting to see you/talk to you/take your photo. I do not think you would ever get used to that.

I think since she wasn't born royal and grew up with this kind of attention, it may be a little overwhelming for her too but she handles it all with a great deal of professionalism and grace. I think it reminds her that she's a future Queen. She really seem to enjoy her royal role and not see it as a burden.

A crowd of several hundred people and fifty photographers await the Duchess of Cambridge at the National Portrait Gallery.

Kate's just made a short speech. She's really becoming a much more confident public speaker.

The dress is being described as a 1960's kind of style.

I'm loving the dress very much!

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/ar...t-Gallery.html

Someone has just described the dress as very 50's --- Kate looking very much like 'Jackie Kennedy O' back in the day!

"Kate has been criticised for her small bump." Stupidest comment ever...
